Why Blog?

Many people consider blogs to be an "online journal or diary", but there are many other ways that blogs can be incorporated into learning outcomes, at all levels and in most learning environments. The link above provides a good introduction to blog usage in higher ed as well as several other links to more pedagogical examples. An introduction to RSS feeds is also provided as well as a few additional links on how to use RSS.

WANTED: Faculty Bloggers @ BGSU!

If you are a faculty member here at BGSU and currently use blogs in your teaching, send me an email briefly describing the details (course, usage, pros, cons, etc.). In a future posting, I will report some of these uses from this campus.
